Sit back, relax, and have a brew by the Delaware Bay from 4 to 8 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 14 when the Cape May-Lewes Ferry hosts the 2nd Annual Brews By The Bay. This festival, taking place at the Lewes Ferry Terminal, is organized by the First State’s breweries and the Delaware Brewers Guild. Patrons can listen to live music as they relax by the beautiful Delaware Bay and sip on beer from all their favorite native Delaware breweries. A special Delaware Brewers Guild collaboration brew will be available as well as selections from each of the breweries' finely crafted selections.
“With the rave reviews this event received last year, how could we not bring it back?” said Nikky Fisher, Lewes terminal manager. “There is going to be live music, good food and plenty of finely crafted beer from your favorite local breweries. Don’t forget a blanket and chair so you can relax by the bay and enjoy the festivities with your favorite brew.”
Participating First State breweries will include 16 Mile, Dogfish Head, Fordham/Old Dominion, Iron Hill, Stewarts, Twin Lakes, 3rd Wave Brew Company and Argilla Brewing Company. Admission to this event includes a souvenir glass and pours of favorite brews. Food vendors will be on-site to provide the crowd with a wide variety of food for purchase. Musical entertainers will also perform live. The Cape May-Lewes Ferry’s outdoor bar and grill, On the Rocks, at the water’s edge, will also be open for the event.
